I am looking at going out for some pout this week on Bemidji, and was wondering what depth most people fish for them. I have an idea on generaly where to go just the depth is the problem. Thanks

      Bucketcastle,  it’s been 2 years since I fished it but my best days were when I did not overthink it. Everything relates to the weed lines because the lake is so shallow. I would find pockets in them and toss a bobber with a plain hook and minnow under it into them.  You can always add a bead to the hook red or chartreuse worked best. There are several points that have some depth (8-10 FOW) that you can work with a jig and minnow, and there is a hump/ rock pile toward the east mid lake that is worth jigging. I ve slipped bobbered these as well.  I did talk to a guy fishes the reeds at the far east end of the lake but have never done it.   Have fun.

      I believe the hog hunting farm is called Ridge Hunting Preserve, it is east of Little Falls the phone number is 320-745-2337 I know people who have hunted up there in the past and had a good time. They said the hogs were running wild in a 20 or 40 acre fenced area but it is not usually easy to get one but there is a high success rate if you have the time to work the area. I am going to confirm the location/name and will probably hunt there this year. Russian Boar are supposed to be pretty tasty and there are meat processors near by to drop the hog off at.

      I went out after the wind died down. Caught 23 with a mix of eyes and saugers.  12 to 15”   With no slots. Fished 12 to 27’. 
      This is off a Ranger with a PRO XS OPTI from opener that wouldn't run. Cost of repairs =$500!!

      For Vermilion, the Lowrance lake insight data is identical to Lakemaster, 3 foot contours.

      Maybe you should check the various sites that sell mapping stuff?   What is the Lowrance offering?   Is there a different Navionics choice?

      Hi everyone, I will be heading to Echo Lake, in the superior national Forest, the middle of June.  Never been there, but the small amount I found on this site says it's a good fishing lake.  Does anyone have past experience on this lake?  I'm targeting walleye mostly, but Pike and crappie are always on my menu.  Are there any lure colors that have worked well for you?  I'm mostly a live bait fisherman.  Any presentations that worked well?  Any advice will be greatly appreciated with this lake, and I will report back how it went/what worked.  Thank you everyone.
